“Those who are unequivocally psychopathic have little hesitation about living out the core of the shadow, the murder/suicide. The results are often shocking and monstrous…All dictatorial forms of government are certainly to some extent dominated by psychopaths…these ‘great’ criminals – and one must include Hitler and Stalin among them – destroyed the lives of millions…Happy the nation which gives such ‘great’ men short shrift.” – A.
